Frequently Answered Questions

These are the most common questions

How much will my implant cost?

The cost of your dental implant surgery is based on the number of implants. This includes the implant, the surgery, and surgical follow up.  Your general dentist will be responsible for making and placing your crown, and will provide you with pricing for that portion of the process. Unless you are using ActOn Implants as the soul provider of your procedure.

How can I get an ActOn Implant?

ActOn Implants works with dentists across the St. Louis area who refer patients to us for dental implants.  Ask your dentist about ActOn Implants and our low-cost, high quality implants. If your dentist is unfamiliar with ActOn, please let them know about us!

We are the experts in the area if you will be working with us directly, we will be your provider from start to finish.

Are ActOn Implants different from other implants costing more?

No. All dental implants come from a handful of manufacturers which are all held to the same strict guidelines by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Because of our relationship with the manufacturer, we are able to pass the savings directly to the consumer while still providing an outstanding level of patient attention and service.

What if I currently don’t have a dentist to refer me to ActOn?

If you haven’t seen a general dentist in over one year, you may contact our office directly without a referral.

Is an implant a better option than a bridge?

The lifespan of a dental implant is much longer than a bridge, and requires no disturbance to the adjacent teeth to place it. In many patients, with proper care and maintenance and no exposure to trauma, dental implants could last a lifetime.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for an implant?

Most patients, regardless of age or previous dental history, are good candidates for dental implants.  With ActOn Implants low pricing, we’ve broken down the cost barrier to make them accessible to even more patients in the St. Louis area.  Talk with your dentist about your specific condition, or contact us for more information.

Are ActOn Implants proven?

ActOn Implants are FDA approved, and are the same as implants used in dental offices across the country charging more.

Are ActOn Implants guaranteed?

Yes! ActOn Implants will provide free replacement of the implant and crown if implant failure occurs within five years of placement. (Does not include loss due to traumatic event.)

Do you accept insurance? How does payment work?

Patients must pay for the implant at the time of service. ActOn Implants will provide patients with the forms they need to submit to their insurance companies for direct reimbursement to the patient.

Testimonials

Real dental implant experiences from actual ActOn Implants patients.

Read what other patients are saying about the dental implant services offered by Dr. Slaven and ActOn Implants.

I was told by my dentist that I needed three implants. I went to Dr. Slaven and another periodontist in town for a consultation. I chose Dr. Slaven. He was very personable and his staff was excellent. Dr. Slaven did all three implants and the crowns. I never experienced any pain or complications. I put this off for ten years and dealt with pain and aggravation. Now I wish I would’ve done it sooner. I also saved over $4,000 dollars by going with Dr. Slaven at ActOn Implants.

Because of MS, I was faced with bone loss that required getting dentures. It was a hard pill to swallow. I went to my original dentist and he told me that my expectations were too high and that fake teeth would never feel right. I was so upset. Thankfully, I met Dr. Slaven and his team. He provided me with implants and overdentures. He was caring and professional. He exceeded my expectations. I now have a solid, tight fit. My new teeth feel natural. Most importantly, I have my confidence back. I will never go anywhere else. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
